Nationals' Max Scherzer: Starting for NL on Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer was named the National League's starting pitcher for Tuesday's All-Star Game, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

It's the third career All-Star start for Scherzer, who received the nod for the NL over the Mets' Jacob deGrom. Scherzer, who maintains a 2.41 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 182:34 K:BB across 134.2 innings this season, is expected to cover an inning or two Tuesday before giving way to the bullpen. He tentatively lines up to make his first start of the second half with the Nationals on Sunday against the Braves.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Earns 12th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (12-5) allowed three earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five across seven innings to earn the win Thursday against the Mets.

Scherzer is tied with Aaron Nola for the National League lead in wins, but he turned in his second consecutive start in which he allowed multiple home runs. Before this stretch, he had allowed more than one homer in an outing only once. While this wasn't the way Scherzer would have hoped to enter the All-Star break, his velocity did bounce back after a slight downturn in his previous start. Given that, it's difficult to be worried about his performance as he remains among the National League leaders in virtually every pitching statistic.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Picks up 11th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (11-5) allowed four runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- over seven innings in a win over the Marlins on Saturday. He struck out three and walked two.

This was probably his worst performance of the season so far -- the three strikeouts marked a season low and the three homers a season high -- but he got the win as the Nats' offense exploded for 18 runs. Scherzer is tied with Aaron Nola for the NL lead in wins with 11, and he's in sole possession of first place in strikeouts, innings and WHIP. He gets the Mets in New York next week in his final start before the All-Star break.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Strikes out nine in loss to Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (10-5) allowed three runs on four hits and three walks across six innings to take the loss Monday against the Red Sox. He struck out nine.

The visitors got to Scherzer early in this one, plating three runs on a bases-clearing double by opposing pitcher Rick Porcello in the second inning. He settled down after that point and allowed just three baserunners the rest of the way, but he received minimal offensive support and wound up with his fourth loss in five starts. Despite his recent record, Scherzer had allowed two earned runs or fewer in each of his previous six starts and still owns a sterling 2.16 ERA. He'll look to get off the schneid this weekend against the Marlins.

Nationals' Max Scherzer: Takes tough-luck loss Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Scherzer (10-4) took the loss against the Rays on Tuesday, allowing one run on four hits across seven innings. He struck out four and walked three.

Scherzer tied his lowest strikeout total and highest walk total of the season Tuesday, but still put forth a quality performance. The Nationals have scored only nine runs during Scherzer's five June starts -- which includes being shut out three times -- leading to a 1-3 record despite allowing only eight runs and 18 hits over 28 innings. The 33-year-old lines up to start against the Red Sox next Monday.
